Personal Notes:
For our annual chili event for the United Way Campaign typically we are doing about 5 batches in a large cooker at a time. We just brown the beef and add all the ingredients into the large cookers and let simmer for the morning..... it is so easy and so very tasty !!!!

Now that the secret is out we still expect your lunch order in October !!!!
